According to “multiple development sources” that have spilled the beans to VGC, the RE4 Remake is said to have entered full production and is slated for a possible 2022 release.

Led by M-Two Inc., led by former Platinum Games CEO Tatsuya Minami, is leading the development for this title ever since reports have put them to be working on a remake title for Capcom.

Most importantly, the original director of the game Shinji Mikami has reportedly already given his blessing for the new project but declined to lead the remake, opting to provide informal advice instead.

RE4, touted as one of the best Resident Evil games in the long running franchise, has been remastered and ported over quite a number of times but has not received the full remake treatment as of yet. With the RE2 Remake from 2019, the behind the shoulder system that RE4 first introduced is now in full effect and even with the recent RE3 Remake, some RE4 references have popped up again like the Parasite Zombies that draw similarities with the Las Plagas.

Any other games Resident Evil games that you would want to see Capcom bring back to life? They’ve recently asked for inputs from players via a survey which you could fill up right now!

We love the Capcom RE Remakes. RE2 set the bar high and RE3 followed up with a slightly weaker but a solid outing nonetheless. If fans want more of these remakes, or even a sequel, Capcom is urging everyone to tell them about it.

Through a survey by Capcom Asia, fans of the franchise are asked to answer a series of questions about Resident Evil but of note, there are 2 rather interesting items here:

At the very least, Capcom is testing the waters to see how much more Resident Evil fans would like to see over the next few years. Another remake? A proper sequel? For the current or next generation?

Resident Evil 4, while already remastered, seems to be the next logical choice if we were to talk about remakes, maybe Code Veronica as well. We’ll have to wait and see but one thing is for sure, the Resident Evil franchise is not going anywhere, not if the fans have a say about it, at least.

As announced by the Capcom Asia Facebook Page, they’ve officially announced the inevitable news of Resident Evil 3 copies facing possible delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Be advised that only Physical copies (and other packages / bonuses that come with the release) will be affected, digital copies and sales are still on schedule for April 3. As their official distributor, Datablitz will be giving us updates as they come.

Square Enix have already announced that physical copies of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake will be delayed and now, RE3 officially takes the hit as well. Like FF7, digital will be the way to go if you want to play RE3 on day 1.

We’ll be updating you on further delays as they are officially announced.
